Meet the friendly staff at Striegel Animal Hospital!
Michelle graduated from Murray State University in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science degree. Her area of study, focused on animal health which allowed her to pursue her certificate as a Veterinary Technician. Michelle’s career started in Louisville, Kentucky as an emergency Veterinary Technician. In 2003 she and her husband, Eric moved to Southern Illinois where she has worked as a Veterinary Technician from 2003-2011 and particularly at Striegel Animal Hospital from 2009-2011.
Michelle returned to school in 2009 and attended JALC in pursuit of a nursing career where she received her LPN degree. She worked as an LPN from 2011-2015 and had a wonderful experience, but missed the animals. In June of 2015 she had a great opportunity to return to Striegel Animal Hospital and begin a great new chapter in her career back with the animals! In Michelle’s spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family: husband Eric, daughter Helen, son Lucas, Golden Retriever Penny, and kitty Wrigley.
